IN ASSOCIATION WITH UKTV
ALIBI, 7pm We were bereft when this slick cop drama finished for good, so thank goodness we can now revel in endless repeats from the past. It’s a bit like reopening our own cold cases.
In this particular offering, there are more adventures with the middle-aged detective squad as they look into the case of a club fire which happened in 1996.
The blaze killed career criminal Mark Johnson, but fresh information suggests the fire might have been an arson attack.
THE BROKENWOOD MYSTERIES
More grim murder cases in this hit crime series from New Zealand.
Shepherd and Sims always get to the bottom of it, but it’s all about the journey.
This time a thief’s corpse is found at a local auto repair shop with a lungful of gasoline.
This discovery is then followed by the murder of the people who worked there. There is definitely something more sinister afoot than a break-in gone wrong.
GAMES ON THE BATTLEFIELD
Part of a Remembrance week of programming, this fascinating historical documentary looks back at some of the lesser known moments from the Great War.
In the First World War, troops were encouraged to take up sports in an attempt to boost morale. And so, just a few miles from the front, soldiers played football, ran races or boxed. For many, it was their first encounter with team games, and the terrible conflict left a sporting legacy.
REALLY, 10pm Bring your nerves of steel and your stomach of iron if you want to tune in to this spook-searching reality show.
Yvette Fielding, who has bizarrely moved into the TV niche of ghost hunter, takes her team to the Keighley Bus Museum.
Once there, they notice vehicles moving on their own, strange footsteps and something which seems to take a dislike to them.
Expect a fair amount of screaming as they work out who (or what) wants them out.
